Software localization

The heart of IT translation: translation of software solutions

Traduction-IN - Localisation logiciel

Software localization and record localization

Always rightly considered our core business, computer translation and especially software localization are carried out by professionals with clear and essential skills:

  1. Competent in computer science. The computer translator must be able to manage the length of the fields, the consistency of abbreviations and acronyms, the recall of system data and the consistency of error messages that occur within the texts, avoiding any kind of error or hesitation
  2. Professionals informed on the target markets of the software. For example, for ERP software localization, the translator in charge has the obligation to master the notions of business management, production management, logistics and purchasing, commercial and financial management, e-procurement, CRM and even Business Intelligence
  3. Experts in the use of different file formats and/or in-house platforms, developed by the software publisher or by the direct customer.

In addition, the IT translators interface with our ICT project manager with over ten years of experience in consultancy for the implementation of international ERP systems (core solutions + roll outs + 15 years of experience in the management of software localization projects and their implementation for our numerous customers).

Terminology consistency and optimization of time and cost of software localization projects

Our IT translation agency correctly manages terminological consistency through the use of CAT tools, with the integration of glossaries provided by customers. In fact, we are able to create lexical databases starting from the extraction of menus and fields related to the translated software. We provide budget and lead time optimization through the use of market-leading CAT tools, such as SDL Trados Studio, which allows you to create and/or augment TMs in all required language combinations. We provide effective versioning management of translated content based on the hoarded translation memories (TMs).
